Sorry, no etymologies found.
Initial reports by Ellis et al. and Kitchell et al. indicated that 68 to 75 percent of patients had clinical improvement, including approximately 35 percent who had complete relief and 42 percent with objective improvements, as measured electrocardiographically.
By contrast, use of electrocardiographically controlled tube current modulation (ECTCM), a strategy used in 73\% of patients, reduced radiation dose by an average of 25\%.
Addressing specific dose-reduction strategies, Einstein says: "Given the strength of evidence supporting it, electrocardiographically controlled tube current modulation (ECTCM) should be widely applied; the evidence for sequential scanning is rapidly accumulating, and it should also be given serious consideration for appropriate patients.
